Crucial MX500 - how to disable APM permanent

Hi all Folks!

This is my first post on Crucial forum.

I use 500GB MX500 in usb 3.0 case as storage. Even dough I have disabled power management in integrated usb hub in Devices Manager, the ssd is going to sleep (power down). I do not need this and I do not like this feature. I have problems with waking up ssd once accessed.

Is there any possibility to disable APM? There is no DCO in firmware nor SET_MAX to enable DCO (and disable APM permanently).

I have made such changes in other devices with success.


Dear Crucial Team - could you please enable DCO in next firmware release?


Thanks in advance!
